Just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and would like to share their experience with me.
I have a 5.5 month old beautiful boy (he is amazing!!!) and am going back to work (2 days a week) on the 1st of Feb, when he'll be 6 months. His sleeping has always been up & down and he had a really bad 4 month sleep regression. Things started to improve and then we went away and it got worse again (10+ wakeups a night at erratic intervals). Just the past four nights we have managed to get him down to one wakeup which is HEAVEN!!! However, I don't count on it lasting!
I am not after sleep advice - I swear I've read everything!! We have worked hard and persisted with all the strategies that work for him and us. What I am after is someone to tell me it's possible to function at work on broken sleep!!!
Did you go back to work before your baby was sleeping through (or even sleeping well)? Any tips???
In an ideal world he will keep sleeping well for me but I need to be mentally prepared if he doesn't. I should mention that I have worked hard on his naps to get them to 1.5-2 hrs long, but I'm also half expecting him to go back to catnapping when I'm gone. But we'll see!!
Thanks in advance
